We can all agree that 2020 has caused shifts in thinking, accelerated change (good and bad), and had us all standing still for a large part of the year (hello lockdown 2.0!). All while trying to work out when and how to get back on track with racing… and life in general. 

Here at Racing Mentor, we looked at what we do too, and how we support your racing journey to reach your pole position seat, in your favourite series, driving your dream race car. We realise sponsorship might not feel viable to you right now, or you may want to pivot your own skills or business to become an income stream for racing. Looking forward, we decided to expand what we do, to reach more drivers, and to encourage you with new ideas and different ways to fund your racing ambitions.

Watch the video below for a little more insight into why we’ve pivoted this year.

We’ve listened to you so, today, we begin the Racing Mentor Side Hustle Series (#RMSHS), a content-rich motivational learning program for the off-season. During the next three months, we’ll guide you through the exciting process of taking your side hustle idea off the page, and into practice. We’ll cover the whole journey, from finding your idea, through gaining confidence and skills, and then ultimately, developing a viable side hustle that sells your skills or products, in-person or online. 

Side hustles should be fun and flexible. Done right, they can help fund your racing; alongside or instead of sponsorship. Whether you’re thinking big or small, 2021 is a fresh start.
